Strategies to Help Struggling Students: A Former At-Risk Student's Perspective

2,013 views

Published on

It can be a challenge for parents, educators, counselors, administrators, and others to identify effective strategies to reach at-risk students. A component of these challenges is that some of these same individuals sometimes project incorrect assumptions about a student who might not be doing well at a moment and also their potential for future success.

Similar false assumptions were made about Mr. Young, his ability to learn, and also his future capabilities.

Mr. Young is a former at-risk student who failed 6 of 7 classes his sophomore year of high school, graduated in the bottom 8% of his class, attended a couple of colleges prior to being able to connect with the process of learning.

Now, Mr. Young teaches college and also founded an educational nonprofit organization "Saving Our Communities at Risk Through Educational Services - SOCARTES: www.socartes.org" to give-back, educate, and inspire.
